School Values and Ethos
Imperial Avenue Infant School is committed to education for all. We foster a nurturing approach in school which is role modelled through staff and is seen through our children’s interactions with one another, ensuring all children feel part of the school community. We believe it is important that when children feel happy and secure they can work to the best of their ability and it raises their self-esteem.
We plan to enable all pupils to foster a love of learning, develop life-long skills and engage in first-hand experiences that challenge, stimulate and promote their thinking. Through a well-planned and organised curriculum, effectively taught by qualified and enthusiastic teachers we promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development preparing all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. As a school we provide opportunities that include taking responsibility, working together and respecting and caring for each other which links to our Imperial Values.
‘We value and respect the uniqueness of each child and work together to achieve success’
Our IMPERIAL values are:
I – MAGINATION
we are curious and ask questions; we are creative and use our imaginations to understand new ideas and to dream big for our futures
M – OTIVATION
we are enthusiastic and ready to learn; we are willing to give things a try. We dare to dream and believe we can achieve our best if we work hard
P – ERSEVERANCE
we are resilient; we do our best and never give up and we encourage others to keep at it too
we show kindness to each other and understand how other people feel;
we celebrate difference; we look after everyone in our school community and keep each other, our school and our environment safe;
we are confident to do things on our own; we are in charge of our own learning and behaviour and create our own success
we work well as a team; we are honest and trust in one another. We share with each other and help each other to achieve.
L – ISTENING & LAUGHING
we enjoy our learning; we love to laugh and have fun, but know when to listen.
As a school we also look at promoting British values throughout the academic year.
